We establish a set of nonequilibrium quantum phase transitions in the DickeView original: http://arxiv.org/abs/1108.2987
model by considering a monochromatic nonadiabatic modulation of the atom-field
coupling. For weak driving the system exhibits a set of sidebands which allow
the circumvention of the no-go theorem which otherwise forbids the occurence of
superradiant phase transitions. At strong driving we show that the system
exhibits a rich multistable structure and exhibits both first- and second-order
nonequilibrium quantum phase transitions.
